The only Hardwood window frames that we recommend using is ‘engineered’. This is a process where several pieces of hardwood are glued together with opposing grain directions to form a single ‘laminated’ piece, this in turn leads to a very stable product, far outperforming solid generic hardwoods. Less movement in the wood means that the paint or finish doesn’t have to flex as much, ultimately leading to longer periods between re-finishing and maintenance of your windows.
The process of bonding timber together to create a component that can be used in windows, doors, conservatories or stair cases has been used for over twenty years. However, it has only been in the last ten years that we have seen significant improvements with large European joinery companies investing in the equipment to produce laminated or engineered components in hardwood or softwood to compete against products offered by companies selling UPVC and aluminium clad systems.
Hardwood double glazing is a fantastic way to add style and class to your property, with our Hardwood window prices being so competitive we can reduce the huge price tag that has been previously associated with Hardwood windows cost in the UK.
